Live Band Night

Monday 25th March 2013, I held my first band night, in aid of raising money for Practical Action. Raised £75.95 in the band night last night 🙂 £151.90 in total 😀
It was hard work, I personally sold 11 tickets to it raising £33. But more than 50 people turned up, the bands brought their own fans which was great, one act didn’t turn up. We were original meant to start playing at 9pm but due to issues with the bands setting up taking longer than accepted and issues with microphones we only started at 9:45pm. I was in charge of getting the bands to the stage in the right order and checking information with the manager of the venue.

 Rory Matthews
 One Way Street
 Fugitive Orchestra
21 Days

I hope I’ve raised some money from this as me and the other organiser are sharing the money raised in ticket sales equally and putting it towards our totals. I don’t think I’ll be doing anything like this again, its just too stressful. If you would like to donate it would be a big help to me 🙂
Thank you for all your help and continued support

I’ve been busy plotting and scheming with a fellow Inca adventurer, and we are putting together a charity band night at a local bar.

For a fantastic night of Live Music and cheap drinks get yourself down to Skye Bar on Monday the 25th of March! All money goes to charity! A great way to celebrate the last week of term, without denting the bank account!

  • One Way Street 
  • 21 Days 
  • The Spotlight

The wristbands are on sale at £3 and £5 on the door with all the money raised from entry going directly into Elena and I Practical Action fundraising totals. If you can’t make it to the event but have some spare change and would like to donate, please do. You can from my justgiving link below.
Here is the charity event
I would like to thank everyone who has donated so far to my JustGiving page, so far 45% of the target total has been raised with your help. £1305,30 is the current total. I’m still awaiting the count on my Rattle cans, I went to Bournemouth for the day on the 6th March, in the cold dancing for money and asking for donations from strangers and passers by.

RAISED £18.58

Thank you for all your help and continued support
